Plaids, stripes, brocade, lace, and the myriad textures and weights of leather (often all in the same hide!) are challenging to work with and match--but Autumn Adamme of Dark Garden Unique Corsetry is coming to Britex Fabrics to show you how to do just that. Tricky Textile Tips 2 will feature pattern matching & advanced tips & tricks held on our Main Floor on Saturday, October 6 (10:30-12:30). This hands-on workshop (space is very limited) will feature demonstrations and practice with structured textiles and fabrics that are especially difficult to get just right, with special emphasis on lightweight leathers and velvet. And afterward, we'll help you find just the right material to make whatever garment Autumn has inspired you to create. *Don't forget--this is the second class in our series with Autumn Adamme! The lecture-format Tricky Textile Tips, with special emphasis on soft textiles, will be held on Thursday, October 4 (6-8 PM).  Autumn Adamme is the founder and lead designer at Dark Garden Unique Corsetry. She began sewing at the age of 8 and hasn't stopped. Her corsets and special occasion attire are world renowned for their quality and attention to detail. She is credited as being a leader of the modern corsetry movement and developed many techniques that are now de rigeur. She continues to have a hand in garment creation at Dark Garden and loves sharing her knowledge of and passion for fine fabrics and the techniques that make working with them pleasurable rather than terrifying
